    What's the deal with the Citi application process? I applied for the Markets - Full Time Analyst position and I just received an e-mail saying that they will be reviewing my background and experiences etc... When will they send out the numerical reasoning test?!

    Does anyone know why HSBC gives you such weird options under "Which area of Investment Banking are you most interested in?"?

    They have the following options:

    - Corporates (=industry coverage?)
    - Advisory (=M&A?), FIG and Public sector
    - ECM, Leveraged finance and Financial sponsors
    - DCM, Infa and real estate

    This seems very random. Why is Leveraged Finance and ECM together? Those areas are pretty different. And why is Advisory with FIG and Public sector? They are mixing products and industry groups. I guess those aren't actual business units, so are they just forcing you to pick something and then it's just luck where you end up? I doesn't make any sense to me, e.g. someone that is interested in debt might chooses the last two options but then ends up in ECM and has nothing to do with debt.

    Agree it's frustrating. Have no idea why they've done it like it. You'd think DCM, FIG and Leveraged Finance would be put together. I'm guessing it's to stop everyone putting the same preferences.

    Apologies mate, misread your initial post

    Completed the test (business insight online assessment) on Sunday and received the online interview invite an hour later, so I'm assuming it was an automatic invite

    do you guys know what the 'relationship coverage' division is in HSBC Global Banking?
    Is it basically private banking/wealth management, or more related to IB in general? so i.e you help IBD sell/present their products :confused:

    and yeah agree they've separated the divisions into weird options , no idea why its like that

    Ohh okay as I completed the test on Friday but still have not heard back regarding the online interview.
    Pretty sure I have failed it then
